Ms Gattis has been a key member of STAND (Serious Texans Against Nuclear Dumping) of Amarillo, a citizens' organization that was originally created to oppose plans to build a high-level nuclear waste repository in the Panhandle of Texas, and later evolved to provide oversight of the nuclear weapons work at the Pantex facility, 16 miles northeast of Amarillo.

In more recent years, Ms Gattis has become interested and active in sustainable architecture, helping bring designers, builders, and owners together for straw-bale construction workshops and seminars.
